The Welsh rugby team warmed up for Ireland game in a public park in Dolphin's Barn yesterday

Residents of a south Dublin suburb were left awe-struck yesterday morning as the Welsh rugby side made an impromptu stop at a local park to go through some plays before their Six Nations draw with Ireland .

The Wales squad are staying in a Kilmainham hotel for the duration of their stay in Dublin and, as they made their way to the Aviva Stadium, coach Warren Gatland obviously thought it was a good time to park the coach at Dolphin's Barn and get some last minute set-piece work.

A local resident noticed the players going through their drills and decided to approach the group to get some snaps, though was then asked not record the training.

"It was definitely them, I saw from outside the house," he told "I was talking to one of the coaches, to one of the younger ones. They just told me not to film what they were doing."
